Mangosteen is a very unique fruit. The flavour is a mix of strawberry, peach, pineapple and lychee, but the fact that these fruits can take up to 20 years to grow is really where the uniqueness lies. On top of that, the origins of mangosteen are somewhat unknown. Due to widespread prehistoric cultivation we are left simply with a fantastically refreshing fruit with a name that sounds like a Swedish mango.
Preparation Ideas: The best way to enjoy a mangosteen is by cutting the fruit around the centre, then picking out the garlic clove-shaped fruit one by one. There is one pit in there, most likely inside the largest segment of the fruit.
